Robert Pattinson Talks Cosmopolis with Cinemania

Mexican magazine Cinemania has just hit newstands with a new interview with Robert Pattinson in which he discusses getting the part of Eric Packer in Cosmopolis and his impressions of director, David Cronenberg.

Q: We thought you were done filming Cosmopolis?

Rob: Yes, but I’m keeping the hair(laughs).

Q: Why are you wearing your hair like that in the movie?

Rob: I can’t explain it. It’s such a strange story. Luckily people will find it interesting.

Q: That didn’t stop you from getting Cosmopolis.

Rob: It was amazing. I let my spiral of paranoia go out of control and I thought all the good directors would want nothing to do with me now. And then Cronenberg makes this offer directly to me. I had neve even met him before.. I had a great time during filming, and I kept saying “Am I good enough? I don’t know what I’m doing,” and he said “why do you think like that? You are an actor,” and the only reason that happened to me it’s because I became this sort of celebrity, and I’m worried that people won’t take me seriously.

Q: What did Cronenberg see in you that he chose to cast you?

Rob: Nothing. Just interviews. And he saw Remember Me. But this character looks like nothing I’ve ever done before.. When I first read the script, I thought I couldn’t play the character. I loved the script, but I was afraid. I said I called him in a week to find out if I wanted the part or not. I spent an entire week thinking how to say no. The only thing I thought was “Look, I can’t do this because I’m a coward and I don’t know how to play it (laughs really loudly). So I said yes, and told him I didn’t know what the story was about. He said he didn’t know either. So we started collaborating from that point on. I had never worked with a filmmaker that had so much confidence in himself. He just said everyday “let’s see what happens,” there were no rehearsals, nothing. It was insane.

Robert Pattinson Talks Cosmopolis with French TF1

While in Paris, France on the Breaking Dawn promotion tour, Robert Pattinson talks a little Cosmopolis during an interview with TF1. Rob talks briefly about working with David Cronenberg, the cast, and what direction this film is taking him.

You still making movies. You just filmed a movie with the Canadian, David Cronenberg . Do you want to take a different turn with your career after the enormous weight that is playing Edward Cullen and Twilight?

Rob: I mean, it’s not really moving away. I don’t think I can see myself doing Twilght after Twilight film for the next twenty years. But I’ve always wanted to mix it up, I mean working with people like Cronenberg, I mean that’s … I loved Cronenberg before I even started acting and especially with amazing actors, Juliette Binoche is in it, and Mathieu Amalric. There are tons of French people working with him. It’s totally different from what I’ve done before and I feel like I’m going in the right direction.
